  • I didn't show for my first child until about 6 months, and I was so sick all the time I'm not sure that I put on much weight before then. Since you are scared, would you call your ob or try calling the ER and see if they have someone who could answer you who could give you a more reliable answer? Or if you have an urgent care clinic open this evening or tomorrow? Call somebody or go to the clinic or the ER and find out so you don't need to worry. And would you please post again so that we know how things are?

  • i would go see ur doc asap... not to worry u though... i lost weight when i was preggo to before i gained weight... and it is to early for u to feel the baby all the time...he might be moving and u just not feeling it... remember the baby is still tinny.... but go see ur doc so that u will feel better and he can make sure everything is a ok

  • no, i didn't feel my first child until i was about 20 weeks and when i was feeling stuff and it was still pretty early, i didn't feel it all the time. And i lost 15 - 20 pounds right after i go pregnant from not feeling good and not keeping anything down. And everything was completely fine, but if your super worried you could call your doctor but they'll probably tell you if your not bleeding or spotting then don't be to worried about it.

  • I was 7 months before people could tell I was prego. If you haven't felt the baby move for a couple days I suggest you go the the doctor, like right now. a couple days is too long!

  • If your worried call your doctor that what they are there for. I was 7 -8 months before you could tell, i just looked fat lol. if your stressed you might lose weight I lost almost 20lbs the end of my pregnancy bc of a break up. take care of yourself, and give the doctor a call they will let you know if its something worth worrying about. GOOD LUCK!
